Aerial Responder Discussion

Angel of Invention seems superfluous here, as it's mainly a pricier Aerial Responder. Also, the Glory-Bound Initiate doesn't give anything you control lifelink, because it only gains lifelink after combat begins.

Noctem Well you don't play the card until main 2 and you have gained life and flip it at your end step. It isn't difficult to do. An Exerted Glory-Bound Initiate a single attack of Gisela, the Broken Blade or even Aerial Responder or Shambling Vent with a Always Watching on the board. Its risk reward is worth it and the cost is cheap for what you would be getting.

Thanks for the suggestions!
I like Skywhaler's Shot. I was using a pair of Fairgrounds Wardens but having a body was tough. I'll swap 2 for the Fan Bearers and probably get some more for the sideboard.
I'm not sure about the Longtusk Cubs though, I think I'd rather have a counter from a Kujar Seedsculptor on an Aerial Responder or a Scrounging Bandar than a Longtusk Cub with 2-3 counters. I know the Sculptor isn't great by itself, but it just has more synergy with what I'm trying to do.

Thx for the +1 aekrusty, much appreciated!
I had in the past Chariot of Victory and Loxodon Warhammer in the deck and I've replaced them both for Sword of Fire and Ice and Sword of Light and Shadow. The reason for this is because of the fact that my board gets "scary" really fast when I start equipping my creatures and thus they get removed. The key to success with this deck is when my creatures stick around, so the swords are more valuable from that aspect. Also, I only need to have one keyword of every kind to get my creatures buffed. So running more artifacts with the same keywords is unnecessary and the deck loses it's flexibility because of it.
I have to admit that I didn't consider Oketra the True and she has to be included, indestructible is king. I'm gonna play-test with her and replace Restoration Angel or Indomitable Archangel with her.
I've found that the trample keyword isn't really needed for this deck since flying mostly does the trick. I'm already going to take out Sword of Vengeance to get an equipment with haste in the deck. So Haunted Cloak (witch is in my opinion a worse Sword of Vengeance) isn't going to make the cut.
Aerial Responder seems like a good card in this deck but there is one flaw, he has nog protection for anything on it's own and is just a big threat combined with Odric. People will recognize this and he will simply get removed. Since I already have a lot of flying and vigilance keywords he is not needed. Fiendslayer Paladin is my pick over him because of the Paladins protection for red and blue spells.
Herald of the Host is to expensive for what she does. There is no way I can tutor her and every 5-drop slot is already taken for the deck. Myriad really shines trough when you can get it to trigger on creatures who reward you for attacking like Sun Titan therefor I only use the Blade of Selves.
Thank you for the comment and your input, I'll put it to good use!

Aerial Responder is good but Gisela, the Broken Blade is better so i'd drop 1 responders for another gisela. Other than that it looks great. I dont know what card you could add for thisbut you need something at least in the sideboard that boost all your creatures +*/+1 to allow your horses to survive a Hour of Devastation.
